And this is what I came up with....
I used Gelatos on a Manila Tag then spritzed with water and guided the color with a brush. You have to be quick to keep them from running all together too much...so dry it with a heat tool.
Then I added Clear Rock Candy Crackle Paint and waited a moment...then hit it with the heat tool.
I know, I know...patience is a virtue that I do not posess...
I used Vintage Photo Distress over the whole tag and edged with a black Sharpie.
Here you can see the Crackle Paint better.
I used the Classics #1 Stamper's Anonymous stamp collection, masking off the pear to add the bottom stamp.
Then my favorite from Tim's Mixed Media collection, the chickenwire, was rolled on in various spots of the tag using Jet Black Archival Ink.
My new favorite is a smooth brown chipboard for the background and a glittered gold ribbon.
Depending on the angle...the tag is darker and lighter as you look through the Crackle Paint.
But, basically, a very quick and easy tag....write on the back and it's a card of a different sort!!!
